This article deals with the 0.06/1000 allicin and 2.5% sodium bicarbonate in order to look for effective drugs in preventing thrush. The results revealed: (1) The incidence of the disease of the two drugs in the less dangerous group was significantly decreased compared with that of the control (P less than 0.01); (2) In the more dangerous group, the incidence of the disease of the allium group was more significantly decreased than that of the control, but no significant decrease in sodium bicarbonate was observed. The two drugs are both effective in preventing thrush and the allium is more effective.
